religion you were, every morning you put your head down on the desk and you said the lord's prayer, which was regarded as nondenominational. now, today you can't do that. my question to you is without faith in the classroom and they're impressionable kids, they don't know the difference between right and wrong in many cases. whether that would have stopped this crazy guy in newtown, i don't know, but it seems to me faith in schools, particularly for these young kids should be restored in some way. >> well, i'm a catholic and i was raised in a pretty strong faith environment with my family. and i certainly had this at my school. and i don't disagree with you. i think it's all sorts of things, larry. it's the lack of parental guidance, as well. i think it's the breakdown of the social fabric of the family in america and many other countries. but the particular problem for america, which no other country that has the video -- britain has mental health issues, britain has the same videos, the same hollywood movies, britain has all the social problems that america has albeit on a smaller scale
